My friend Ken M was in charge of security for FS rally Saturday, he standing for MA-Oath Keepers. MA AP-III (American Patriots III%, which he and I are both affiliated with, as well as MAOK) had given the stand down order last Monday, based on the previous weekend and the expected turnouts and response.
AP-III was correct in doing so.
It was a complete shit show.
Ken made the call to pull the plug about an hour early for security reasons, ie there wasn't any. Those on the band stand (Free Speech) numbered about 40. They were outnumbered 1000 to 1. The crowds were closing on them and BPD was not going to be able to stop them. They coordinated with BPD, who then EVAC'd them in vans to a safe location. Vans were attacked en route out of area (pounded on, hit, etc - but not disabled)
There was a large contingent of violent "counter protesters" mainly BLM & ANTIFA, but the bulk of the crowd was ordinary Moonbats who of course do not believe in Free Speech.
The rally had nothing to do with White Supremacy or Nazis or whatever, but simply to stand for Free Speech for ALL.
I did not go into Boston, as it went down about as I expected... I had monitored on Zello app, MAOK channel. I can be found on ..................... It is a pretty good secondary COMS option.
There will be an AAR forthcoming and if I get permission I will send that along as well.
